NIGHT SAFARI BUFFER ZONE

A recent initiative by the Forest Department. The guests now have an option to explore the dense jungles at night.

BIRD WATCHING

The Bahmni Nature trail has options for 5, 7 & 11 km loops. The walk takes you along the Banjaar river and runs parallel to the core zone of the Kanha National Park. Excellent birding, wonderful viewpoint and a chance to see the animals on foot make it an excellent option. It is a slow-paced activity and an opportunity to be really at one with the wilderness.

Note: The nature trail can be accessed directly from our resort in Kanha, without having to go to the formal entry point.

CYCLING SAFARI BUFFER ZONE

Again a recent initiative by the Forest Department. The guests now have an option to explore into the interiors of the forest using all-terrain bicycles. The focus will be on interpretation of tracks and jungle signs, things that are normally missed when in a vehicle safari. The length of cycling track can be tailored but typically last a couple of hours, stopping en-route for refreshments/ picnics with the entire team of Asteya Kanha Resort

TRIBAL EXPERIENCE

The village is a showcase of traditional Baiga Tribal life with beautifully painted mud huts belonging to a primarily agrarian tribal society. Life in these villages remains untouched by modern development and allows a rare insight into the anthropological heritage of Madhya Pradesh. The village location also allows for panoramic views of the landscapes and forests of the area.
